Definately a 3.5 star item, but let's give it 4 for fun
Darren Harrison | Washington D.C. | 10/29/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Cruelly drubbed by many reviewers for folklore inaccuracies (Robin Hood's daughter is of noble blood etc), blatent historical inaccuracies (revealed in the final reel) and the Disney-fied vision of medieval life. This movie (originally made for television) is actually well worth a look and really not all that bad if taken for what it is (a fantasy re-imagining of the what if the good hearted English outlaw Robin Hood had a daughter who followed in her fathers footsteps). With some great acting - especially from Malcolm McDowell as the dastardly Sheriff of Nottingham and rising Hollywood star Keira (King Arthur, Pirates of the Caribbean) Knightley as the title character Gwyn.
Revolving around the attempts of Robin Hood (and subsequently Gwyn) to safely transport King Richards illegitimate son Phillip to London in an effort to thwart Prince John's designs on the English throne. The movie has enough action to keep the young ones happy and enough drama and romance to make it a diverting picture for the adults.
Kudos also to director Peter Hewitt for providing a light commentary on this DVD."
Delightful treat ~ good clean fun for the whole family!

(4 out of 5 stars)

"I stumbled across this delightful treat of a Disney film a few years ago, just as Kiera Knightley was breaking onto the Hollywood scene in "Bend It Like Beckham"...

A family-friendly film, this fictional story "Princess of Thieves" centers on Robin Hood's almost-grown teenage daughter, Gwyn (Kiera Knightley). While King Richard lies dying (off at the crusades), his illegitimate son (& rightful heir), Prince Phillip (Stephen Moyer) must bravely face danger & the mercenaries hired by Prince John (Richard's evil brother) to travel across England & ascend the throne. The tempestuous father/daughter relationship between Robin Hood & Gwyn must be overcome (Gwyn is angry with her father, as he is gone all the time & won't let her join his band of merry men), in order that they might help Phillip to his rightful place as ruler, foiling the plans of the evil Prince John. But when Phillip & Gwyn meet by chance under false circumstances, anthing & everything could happen...

For those of you worried about content, this is a very family-friendly movie: there is some mild romantic tension & a time when a woman dressed as a man ends up atop another man for a few seconds (clothes on, they were fighting), there is some killing/death (nothing too drastic or bloody shown) and there is mild violence as people fight. Beyond this, there is little to object to...

I was quite impressed by this film: I gave it 4 out of 5 stars for the fictional nature of the story and cheese factor, but I must say I really did like this movie & have watched it quite a few times: a sweet, sweet story with some good actors/actresses, I would recommend this as a nice break from everyday fare & a good film for the whole family to watch!"
Highly Exciting Clean Fun Adventure of Robin Hood Legacy
MoonLitTree | USA | 11/01/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Very well-crafted Disney Production, much reminiscent of "Pirates of the Caribbean - The Curse of the Black Pearl" blockbuster adventure-ride.
Keira Knightley's superb performance alone makes it worth watching many times. Excellent soundtrack keeps adventure rolling with well balanced script and extraordinary overall performance of all casts.
Insightful quotes such as "Life is a wild horse, ride it all it will ride you", "One man's desire should not cause another man's suffering", etc. makes it a perfect clean movie for its originally intended teen-audience demography, as weel as for the whole family. Unfortunately enough, it is really very hard to find any such movie these days which can claim the same.
